To fight corruption, nations must "build up a zero-tolerance for corruption, strengthen the rule of law and offer no immunity to crime, no matter who is accused" but in Nigeria today the reverse in the case where current State affairs are entirely in a total mess under the current president watch.
Nigeria is a home of “Criminality, insecurity, weak governance, lack of infrastructure, and the Government’s especially the current president Muhammadu Buhari difficulty in extending the rule of law to all parts of the country has pose challenges to future economic growth.”
Nigeria is One of the countries that has been wrapped thoroughly in the grasp of extra-judicially killing, and human spilling of innocent citizens human right violation of its citizens for many years and in recent time. Ethnicized and hypocritical fight in corruption by her current president Muhammadu Buhari have destabilised the country’s ability to operate efficiently from an economic standpoint, and the result has been devastating to many of the country’s citizens.
The world’s biggest, bad and unsafe place to be is in Nigeria. There is little doubt in anyone’s mind that the country is immensely corrupt, having been built on corruption, lies by British and efficiently run into the ground over the past half-century by military dictators mostly the northern extraction of the country
Notorious for having little electricity,non-motorable roads, dead trap hospitals, dilapidated schools and universities structures and sending its citizens to prison camps, Nigeria government and economy are effectively shrouded in mystery. While it does receive aid from countries like United Kingdom, America, France, etc.
Nigeria obviously has had problems producing enough fuel and food to care properly for its citizens.The current president spending far outweighs spending on foreign trips on health bases and acquiring weapons on the disguised to use them to fight Boko Haram but, use them to fight those he perceived as his enemies and top on the list are the indigenous people of Biafra, who he has been killing since he assumed the office.
According to a British man called Lord Apsley he said and I quote "Nigeria is a ”toilet where evil reigns”, Let the truth be told, nothing has gone well in Nigeria and nothing will ever go well in Nigeria, Evil and corruption metamorphosis and grows from one stage to another , an elderly man once said and i quote "I was born in the same year Nigeria gained independence and as I ponder and reflect on the last 52 years all I see is violence, bloodshed, dashed hopes, lost opportunities and shattered dreams.
Killing of unarmed protesters , church bombings, the slaughter of the innocents by Nigerian security, Islamic fundamentalist rebellions, battle-ready ethnic Fulani herdsmen/militias and bloodthirsty local warlords, economic degradation, decaying infrastructures, environmental disasters and untold suffering and hardship, poverty and unemployment, poor quality leadership and a dysfunctional failed state which is still struggling to find it’s true identity.

Nigeria has one of the worst human rights records of any country in the world.Amongst the most grave human rights issues plaguing the Nigeria are "the government’s manipulation of the electoral process, which severely limited citizens’ right to change their government peacefully through free and fair elections; restrictions on civil liberties, including the freedoms of assembly, speech, and press; and disregard for the physical integrity of persons whom it arbitrarily and unlawfully detained, tortured, or killed."
Nigeria is a totalitarian state—a place where basic human freedoms are almost non-existent. Nigerians themselves are under assault it's a place of horrific forced labour camps, torture, public executions, and a history of mass malnutrition and even mass starvation. Generations of Nigerians especially the people of the old eastern region otherwise known as the Biafrans have suffered at the hands of the Hausa/Fulani leaders.
It is long past time to address the threat that this government’s abuses pose not just to people but the international framework for the protection of human rights and respect for the rule of law. The gravity of the violations in question and the absence of hope for accountability at the domestic level heighten the urgency for seeking criminal liability: individual criminal responsibility for Nigerian leaders, including the current president Mohammad Buhari and those who run his government’s security apparatus. Justice is needed not only to address past atrocities but to demonstrate to Nigerian officials now that further abuses will subject them to future prosecution.
